1. THE INVITATION

"On the third day there was a wedding in Cana of Galilee and the mother of Jesus was there. Jesus and his disciples were also invited to this wedding."

It has been almost a year since we have been keeping our distance, limiting our meetings, contacting each other virtually, putting off invitations for some time "later"... But the wedding of our life is still going on.

Perhaps some of the guests left long ago, maybe some didn't show up at all, maybe our legs are tired of dancing, or maybe we've run out of wine...?

But the celebration of life is still going on. And it can again acquire a new taste, smell, color...

Celebrate life, - rejoice in its daily rhythm and know that the invited God is and will be there from the beginning to the end, without distance and without change - it is to let oneself be in Cana.

"Our diverse talents and abilities, our differences in culture, nationality and age are assets for the richness of the community. Although we may be engaged in a variety of ministries, we all share the common call to apostolic discipleship in a community of the Catholic Apostolate of St. Vincent Pallotti."(OWL, 91)

"As a community of disciples we are gathered around Jesus, the Apostle of the Eternal Father. Like the first disciples, we want to be with Jesus, be sent out by him and return to him to evaluate our service in the light of his presence." (OWL, 88)

"Our relationships with one another should be marked by a love that bears all, believes all and hopes for all, a love that is neither conceited nor jealous, which hurts no one, nor is embittered or resentful. It is never discouraged but remains patient and kind. It rejoices with others and shares their suffering. It is with this kind of love that we should help and support one another." (OWL, 90)
